2019 Tigers 1st Grade Women’s Premiership Coach Chris Clifton has been rewarded for an outstanding season by being appointed to the Collingwood Football Club’s AFLW Coaching staff for the 2020 AFLW season.
Chris will take the reins as Senior Assistant & Midfield coach for the Pies and relocated to Melbourne a couple of weeks ago in preparation for the start of preseason next week.
This is an outstanding result for the hardworking Tigers Coach who has had outstanding success since joining the Tigers. He has taken the Rising Stars to two Grand Finals 2016 & 2018 followed by his elevation to Head of the Tigers Women’s Program and leading the Tigerettes to the 1st Grade Flag in 2019.
He also is involved in coaching the GIANTS Boys Academy, ACT School Sports and Coaches the Army Ladies team at the Defense force Championships.
Chris becomes the 3rd Tigers Coach to have been appointed to an AFLW Club with 2017 Tigerettes 1st Grade Premiership Coach Cheyne Webster appointed North Melbourne AFLW Development Coach for 2020 and current Tigers 1st Grade Men’s Coach Adrian Pavese having coached at Melbourne FC 2014/15 vs. Western Bulldogs Exhibition Games as Forward Line Coach followed by his appointment with GWS GIANTS AFLW Team 2017/18 as Senior Assistant & Forward Line Coach.
We congratulate Chris on his appointment to the Pies and wish him all the very best. There is no doubt Chris will add plenty to the Pies program with his hard work ethic and outstanding knowledge of the game.
Our Tigers supporters will have plenty of reasons to watch the 2020 AFLW competition with so many Tigers in action.
